The 6-4 175 quarterback out of Henderson High School is a solid Division I prospect in football and baseball. In fact his 90+ mph has garnered attention from several Major League Baseball scouts. But for now, Tyrell Jenkins has decided Baylor University is the next step for him. BearsIllustrated.com briefly spoke with Jenkins to get his take.
"I am committed to Baylor University for football and baseball," says the talented 2-sport athlete.
Jenkins explained that he was unable to speak with any of the Baylor baseball coaches because the Baylor baseball team is in Cuba, however he is excited at the opportunity to play two sports at Baylor.
The talented athlete told BearsIllustrated.com that he enjoyed his visit to the Baylor campus.
"I liked the coaches, and hanging out with the guys. It is an overall good program, and Baylor is a good school," Jenkins said.
Jenkins also explained he came away impressed with Baylor head football coach Art Briles.
"He is like a replica of my high school coach. They coached together, and they are both old school, and I like that."
While professional baseball may still be a possibility for Jenkins, he tells BearsIllustrated.com that he is a firm verbal pledge.
"I am 100% committed."
